Our research team is devoted to developing novel therapeutics for the treatment of CNS disorders. We are currently seeking a post-doctoral candidate to characterize recently de-orphanized GPCRs expressed in the CNS including the in vitro pharmacology and in vivo functions. Specifically, the candidate will use different in vitro functional assays to characterize various ligands for the receptors to study the mechanism of actions of the ligands as well as the signal pathways of the receptor activations. In addition, the candidate will be expected to perform a variety of in vivo studies to define the physiological functions of the newly identified receptors, either using the receptor specific agonists, antagonists, or the receptor-knockout/knockdown mouse models.

In this position, the individual will be an active participant in a dynamic drug discovery environment and will receive guidance from internationally recognized experts in the field. The successful candidate will also be encouraged to present their data both internally and externally and will have the opportunity to publish their findings.


Ph.D., or equivalent, with research experience in neuroscience, molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field.

Ideally, the successful candidate will have previous experience not only studying recombinant and native GPCRs as well as in vivo/vitro expertise.

However, it is more important that the candidate be self-motivated, productive with proven scientific problem-solving skills and team orientated.

This position is located in La Jolla, CA and requires negligible travel.
